Question Audio Card sudgestions?

Can you guys recommend me some audio cards? I think the ASUS has kinda bad "HD" audio. Dont rly wanna spend over 50$ since I only have 2 front speakers and a sub woofer, so nothing too fancy. I heard sound cards speed games up a little bit so the cpu doesnt have to waste resources on sound. I would like to get one from newegg or tigerdirect. thanks in advance guys!

if ur not going to spend more then 50$ your supreme fx hd card from asus cant be beat. my friend had an audigy 4 and it pales in comparison to the card given to you by asus, hes an audiofile to, and he know sound quality, and in his media pc he has like a 300$ card. also if yoru speakers arent great there isnt much point in a great sound card.

i thought you were getting $84... why are you trying to skimp on so many components!? you need to layout a nice foundation for your future pcs... a nice X-fi soundcard will last you for a good time... unlike a $50 budget card that will sound decent for the first few days (over onboard)

Xfi is the bomb.. it has EAX and all the goodies. Sure the Xplosion has better sound, but most people wont notice the small difference without a trained ear and really expensive speakers/headphones.
